UK vocational education providers to seek partnership in Vietnam

Leading providers of technical and vocational training and education from the United Kingdom will visit HCM City and Hanoi from January 15-18 to set up and extend partnerships with local companies, schools, colleges, universities and government organisations.

According to the British Embassy in Vietnam, the British delegation includes representatives from colleges, private training providers and companies specializing in providing business solutions such as professional development programmes, vocational qualifications, teacher training, courses with industry recognised accreditation and management consultancy.

With a young population and a dynamic business environment, Vietnam stands out as a country with great potential for partnership with the UK, which is a centre of excellence for technical and vocational training, said Ian Gibbons, British Consul General in HCM City and Director of the Department for International Trade in Vietnam.

“I’m confident that the partnerships established will endure and help equip Vietnam’s students, workers and companies with the 21st century knowledge and skills for them to prosper in the global marketplace”, he stressed.  

The Department for International Trade Vietnam, in cooperation with the Vietnam Directorate for Vocational Education and Training, will organise seminars in HCM City on January 15 and in Hanoi on January 17.

The seminars will offer opportunities to share the UK’s expertise in technical and vocational training and education and introduce its technology and equipment in the fields of automotive, textile-garment and construction, hospitality, English, ICT and soft skills to local stakeholders.

In addition, B2B meetings with members of the delegation will also take place in both cities.
